Detailed care instructions and aftercare kits are provided with each service. Below is an overview of care instructions.
Keep the brow as dry as possible for the first 3 days.
Blot the brows gently with towelettes provided
Allow eyebrows to completely dry before applying a healing balm.
Once fully dry, apply a thin layer of provided ointment (1/2 rice size amount on each brow).
Repeat the above steps 2 times per day for 7-10 days after service.
Healing balm can be used as often as needed, to soothe and aid in healing.
DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring and pigment loss.
-Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for a minimum of 4 weeks after your procedure. Direct sunlight can cause the pigment to change color while it is healing and can also cause hyperpigmentation and scarring.
Avoid pool, sauna, steam rooms, hot showers, and/or hot baths for 10 days.
Avoid sweating on your face for 7-10 days. Sweating through or on the brows will expel pigment from the dermis producing poor results.
Avoid sleeping on your face/brows for the first 10 days.
Keep your bangs and hair pulled back from your face for the first 10 days.
NO makeup or skincare products are to be used on the treated area for 10 days.
After 10 days, once the area has healed completely, consider using sunblock when going out in the sun to stop the color from fading.
Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks after your procedure.
Avoid Retin-A, Chemical Peels, Laser Treatments, Microdermabrasion, and/or anything to treat hyperpigmentation around the brow area once healed to prevent fading of your brow tattoo.
Please note: Eyebrows will appear darker, bolder, and sharper due to natural scabbing and healing for the first week. This is very common for all permanent cosmetic procedures.
Brow tattoos normally last 1-3 years depending on the client’s lifestyle, skin type, and aftercare.
Exposure to the sun and tanning beds can cause fading and discoloration of the pigment.
Always apply sunblock (50 SPF or greater) on the brow area once completely healed.
Maintain removal of unwanted brow hair outside of your tattooed brow design by tweezing, threading, waxing, or razoring.
Do not do laser around your brow area (IPL). Some lasers may change the color of the pigment.
Additional brow makeup application may still be required post tattoo to achieve your desired look.
For further sun protection wear hats and sunglasses.
Yearly touchups are recommended to maintain your results.
Avoid using chemical skin exfoliants on the brows and forehead area. The use of these products will cause premature fading and tattoo discoloration. Examples may include but are not limited to: Glycolic Acid, Hydroquinone, Retinol, Retin A, Vitamin C, “peels” or “brightening.”
Any service or product used to treat hyperpigmentation on the forehead and eye area should be avoided.
Complete your antiviral medication for another 5 days to prevent an outbreak.
For 10 days, at night and in the morning with clean hands gently wash your lips with a fragrance-free antibacterial soap provided. Then pat your lips dry with a clean paper towel or tissue and apply a thin layer of the provided ointment.
During the day if lips feel dry, apply a very light layer of ointment. Make sure to dab/press onto skin, do not rub it in.
Avoid over-saturating lips with the ointment but also avoid lips getting dried out.
-Itching is normal, DO NOT PICK! -Wash your face carefully avoiding the lip area for 10 days.
No lip makeup for 10 days.
No spicy foods for 24 hours and drink liquids using a straw.
No extreme sweating for 5 days.
Avoid pools, hot tubs, or other bodies of water for 5 days.
While eating, do not constantly wipe your lips with a napkin or keep licking your lips as this will impede the healing process. DO NOT PICK dry healing tissue or you WILL remove the pigment color!
You may apply an ice pack (which must be protected with a damp barrier film of paper towel) for 10-minute intervals for the first 48 hours. Ice may be applied every hour or so if desired. Do not put ice directly on the area.
Do not expose the lips to direct sunlight or tanning beds for 2 weeks. This is new skin and will sunburn easily and direct sun prematurely may also cause scarring and alter pigment color.
No smoking while lips are healing (10 days minimum).
No kissing, rubbing, or friction on your newly tattooed lips until after 10 days or you may lose pigment.
Lips may be dry for 3 to 6 months depending on the body’s reaction.
Using a fresh Q-Tip, apply a light coat of provided healing balm to the tattooed area twice a day. Keeping the area moist during the first 5-7 days will help the tattooed area hold color and heal evenly. It is normal for the pigment to fade 30-50% within the first two weeks.
Do not touch the tattooed area with your fingers. This increases your risk of infection.
Do not rub or scratch your eyes. This increases your risk of a corneal abrasion.
If you should experience swelling, the provided ice pack may be applied using a thin protective barrier such as a paper towel. Icing is most effective in the first 24 hours following the procedure. Sleeping with your head slightly elevated can also reduce any residual swelling.
Do not apply makeup or mascara on or near the tattooed area for 7 days. Purchase new makeup or mascara to avoid contamination or bacterial infection.
Do not scrub or pick at the tattooed area. Doing so can cause the pigment underneath to be pulled out. Allow the epithelial skin to flake off by itself.
Do not use makeup remover or creams and avoid pools and hot tubs for two weeks.
With freshly washed hands, you gently cleanse the eye area with tepid water. Avoid cleansers, soap, and washcloths.
Do not wear contact lenses for 72 hours following the procedure. If possible, use a new pair.
Sunglasses are recommended to protect the eyes when outside.
Please notify us immediately should you experience any of the following symptoms: redness in or around the eye, matting or drainage, pain that becomes increasingly worse, difficulty keeping your eyes open, and sensitivity to light.
